Hi All,

Bit of a "me too", but I'm also having the problem with 'Timeout on
getting data from GPS' when using my NMEA BT GPS receiver (Oasis
Media). It appears to be a fairly low-level issue as far as I can
tell, since restarting/reconnecting with gpsd or hidd don't seem to
work. My workaround was to go in and out of "offline mode" (which I
presume reset the BT radio). Thanks for the pointer with putting on
the cover, that works too :-)

I hope one of the Nokia devs can help fix this, since I was really looking
forward to using gpsdrive on my 770 :-/
